Support the Festival
Oh, undeceive thyself. I am a force
That cannot be resisted
Victor Hugo in Hernani (1830)
FORWARD WE GO!
75 years on, the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence continues to look to the future.
All through its history, as we should continue to remember, patronage has never ceased to believe in this future, and to follow, to support and to build the very conditions of its growth.
This year – and it is a major event – we are taking one further step toward the Festival’s ability to consolidate its very fragile economic model, one that is nonetheless committed to its missions of excellence, of discovery, of creation, of inclusion, in short to those undertakings that make the Festival this unique, remarkable place, known throughout the entire world.
We are therefore honoured to tell you that, with the support of the Académie des beaux-arts, the Fondation pour le Festival d’Aix-en-Provence has been instituted through the generosity of our patrons, lending us a protective, independent arm that truly guarantees a future such as our patrons have always provided, side by side with us.

YOUNG DONORS: BRING OUT THE PHILANTHROPIST IN YOU!
In order to support the Festival in all of its activities, thematic circles have been created that unite individual donors and corporate sponsors around their specific aspirations and sensibilities. These patrons are actively involved in the process of artistic creation, the training of young musicians and singers, and efforts to raise public awareness. They are thus at the heart of the Festival and actively participate in its raison d’être. They are offered exclusive benefits, in line with their commitment.
